This is for sure my favorite Help>Slip>Franklin's for sure. Just listen to the music play! Bobby does a play on the rhythm guitar part from China Cat during the verse of Franklin's Tower and it sound PERFECT! I love the April '77 shows because they are distinct from the raging May shows. The April shows are a little more laid back and have more of a '76 vibe to them. The energy is not lacking in any way, just a slight stylistic difference. Keith is doing some really cool Moog organ work on Row Jimmy and the Scarlet>Fire>Estimated is perfection. Lots of great stuff here, don't miss out!
